The Nextbase NBDVRMIRROR Rear View Mirror Dash Cam Review

First of all, we’re going to quickly over the design of this Nextbase Dash Cam as this one is a little different to most of the others that we have tested in the past. With this dash cam, it is designed to be mounted onto your rear view mirror. It is incredibly thin and lightweight so it is perfect if you want something ultra-discreet.

In terms of materials, you can certainly tell that high quality materials have been used for the construction of this dash cam. It feels like it has been built to last. It feels solid and like it would withstand being knocked around a little without causing any damage.

Installing the Nextbase NBDVRMIRROR Rear View Mirror Dash Cam

Installing the Nextbase NBDVRMIRROR Rear View Mirror Dash Cam didn’t take us very long to do at all. However, it is worth noting that the initial setup is a little lengthy and did take us quite some time to complete. However, once we were all setup we were ready to go so that we could test the camera properly.

In terms of resolution, we had no issues at all in any light conditions. We were able to make out the finer details in both light and dark, even number plates. The only issue that we have with this dash cam is the field of view. At only 140 degrees we did feel that the view is restricted a little bit which is a shame. An extra 30 degrees would have made all the difference.

Fantastic 4″ Crystal Clear Screen

One thing that we really liked about the design is the 4” screen. It is crystal clear and very bright and can be hidden when you don’t want to use it, which is great for viewing your footage without obstructing your view. One extra feature that was a very nice touch was the Cam Viewer app which can be downloaded from the app store.

With this app, you are able to view and edit your footage over WiFi. This is perfect for those who want to document and share their journeys via social media. Overall, we were highly impressed with the Nextbase NBDVRMIRROR Rear View Mirror Dash Cam and would absolutely recommend it.
